Default First trip of 2016

Sad, but true. October 11, 2016 - Dauphin Island. Saw lots of large blue crabs, needed a scoop net. Missed three flounder and about four sheepshead...probably 100 mullet.

Last trip was December of 2015. Got a little windy after midnight.

John you haven't missed much down that way. I've been a few times and it was real slim.

Nice gigging trip. Ditto for the photos too.

Since I do not have a boat, I do all of my flounder gigging by wading. I always wear a wading belt with two rod holders attached to the belt. This way, I can take along a dip net for scooping up some large blue crabs I come across. If I catch some, I put them in a wading donut ring. Flounder and crabs on a gigging trip is an excellent combo catch.

BTW, thanks for sharing your report and photos.

Thanks. It seems to be off from the past few years - although that is just my one trip assessment.

Only saw a few redfish, no drums, a few stingrays, needlefish,...things just seemed to be "off".

I've been wading twice and have yet to see any. But then again I don't cover a lot of ground. I've got some lights on order from Jerry for my old bay boat. Hopefully I'll be able to track some down. My hunting buddies in Oklahoma are looking forward to the annual fish fry and all I've managed so far is kings. I ate all the snapper we caught this year...
